Nov. 16 - Fun Fitness Challenge

Posted: Updated:

PRINCESS ANNE, MD—Students from the University of Maryland Eastern Shore are holding a Fun Fitness Challenge, Friday, Nov. 16, at 9 a.m. at Greenwood Elementary School to combat childhood obesity.  The school's fifth grade classes will participate.

The event is spearheaded by UMES' Honda Campus All-Star Challenge Academic Quiz Bowl Club in cooperation with Somerset County public schools.  They have enlisted the help of other students in the departments of exercise science and human ecology, the Student Government Association and the university's Health and Wellness Center, said the academic team's advisor, Dr. James White Jr.  "Even the UMES mascot, Harry the Hawk, will join in the fun."

"Fun Fitness Challenge features fitness activities and nutritional information designed to get the school's youth moving and practicing healthy habits," White said.

Honda Campus All-Star Challenge, sponsored by Honda Motor America, is the first-ever academic competition between students at America's Historically Black Colleges and Universities. Now in its 25th season, nearly 100,000 HCASC players have demonstrated their intellects and fast recall and have earned over $7 million in grants from Honda for their institutions.
